Philips Business Innovation Centre FiftyTwoDegrees in Nijmegen, Netherlands by Mecanoo architecten b.v.

Knowledge centre

At the start of the new millennium, Philips Semiconductors (now NXP) wanted to expand its current production and research site in Nijmegen by creating a new knowledge centre for the development of semiconductors for the electronics industry. The existing production site is sealed off and fenced in for security reasons. The new knowledge centre, where technology, science, culture, work, living and leisure come together, fosters chance encounters and collaboration with diverse parties. The name of the complex, FiftyTwoDegrees, refers to the site’s 52nd degree of latitude, which like the ambition of the initiators, spans the entire world.

Tuesday, July 19th, 2016

Article source: saiz+renduelesARQUITECTOS

This residential building makes the most of a tiny space that enjoys a privileged location on a chamfered sidewalk street corner.

The public space takes the lead. The strong volumen of the building steps back on the corner to emphasize the main access.

Mapo_ New development and a hybrid urban landscape

Mapo is a district undergoing considerable transformation in Seoul through a recent redevelopment craze. Large enterprises, hotels and apartment complexes unable to bear the cost of rent in existing urban centers are entering Mapo’s competitive market. Therefore, the image of Mapo is changing with the development of large apartments complexes behind a single layer of high-rise buildings positioned along the edge of the main streets. In contrast, a part of Mapo district remains undeveloped and intact as it was built from the 1960’s with small scale buildings.
